Ginger taste delicious in many dishes, but my love for ginger is due to its amazing skin & hair benefits. Rich in antioxidants, ginger has anti-aging properties, preserving collagen. It soothes irritation, inflammation & repairs skin damage. Ginger repairs tissue at the cellular level, promoting rapid healing to cuts & abrasions. It also reduces scars & cellulite by counteracting the impact of free radicals.
